JECT-SENSE is a new art-tech collaboration between the JECT.AI start-up working in the news media sector, media artist Antoni Rayzhekov, and curator Claudia Schnugg. It will develop novel and unconventional ways for journalists and a general audience to engage with news coverage, including scientific coverage, which in turn be realized as a visualization component for JECT.AI’s digital product, an artwork and a video demonstration.
JECT.AI manipulates a news information set that is very large. It is difficult to understand this news coverage using text outputs. News landscape concepts, such as information clusters and patterns of biased information, are difficult to detect and represent. Therefore, the new artwork, called Fragile Perspectives, will stimulate new insights about news coverage through multi-sensory experiences including landscapes, tangible objects, soundscapes, and spatial arrangements. The artwork will inform new news visualizations to build into JECT.AI.
JECT.AI sells a digital tool for journalists to create new content. Antoni Rayzhekov is a media artist with a background in music, performing arts, digital arts and computing. Claudia Schnugg is an independent curator of art-science collaborations.
